    My FOC Shockwave ain't no star cruiser... he's a big G1 laser gun! I waited 3 long days for Shockwave to reach American soil. When he did I found out that when you pop off his ball-jointed wings you can get a pretty decent gun mode. He looks good with classics, a little taller than a seeker but not as broad.

    Pretty cool of Hasbro to sneak that 3rd mode in there.

    Gun mode becomes evident halfway through the 1st transformation. Now that people know what to look for, changing Shockwave into a gun is easy. Previous reviewers may have missed it because of fear of breaking the wings off.

    Meh, I like him as a jet Cadillac thing better. (That's how his jet mode comes off to me for some reason.)

    Looks more like a mess of robot parts attached perpendicular to another mess of robot parts. Good to know the wings are detachable though.

    Cool, but the million dollar question remains, can FoC Bruticus yield him as a gun?

    When transforming to jet mode leave chest/windshield standing straight up.

    Remove wings

    Put arms/thrusters straight out.

    Turn upside down.

    Done.

    Ironically 1984forever, it looks like a mess of metal or a "knockoff" of Transformers as you like to call it.
